and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are at risk of being dropped. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this, and the republicans had the plan. they put a plan out. they put a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan basis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. and governor romney at the beginning of this debate wrote and said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice
, from dennis miller, obama better hope a kicked rear end is covered under obamacare. next from indecision. the october surprise in this election is that mitt romney is actually good at something. ouch. jim sterling tweets, obama is winning the "looking amazingly condescending when the other guy talks" race. finally this one for you from doug benson. just 14 minutes until we can all go back to preferring the kand date we liked when the debate started. all from twitter. we have a lot more. you know, as far as what happened last night and i promise to hear from the president and it sounds as though he is still debating today. he spoke just a couple hours ago in denver. here he is, president barack obama. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> that was the president on last night's debate and, well mitt ro
it indirectly. and romney's also changed -- i'm sorry. obama has changed his tune on the promise for the future. the new plan, he said, starting august 8th in colorado and repeated is he won't raise your taxes next year. so after 2013 there is no promise from obama for any american on any tax protection. he's open to raising taxes on anyone and everyone. and he's going to have to because even with his tax increases on the higher income people, he runs a $6.7 trillion debt over the next decade. and that buffett rule tax raises less than 1% of the debt he's running up. he's got to go straight at the heart of the middle class to pay for his bigger government. >> i think it's very interesting. i still have not heard from mr. norquist whether any tax increases should be necessary to deal with the budget deficit and the budget deficit we face as a country. are we going to try to do this all through spending cuts? and if so, how in the world do we do it without eviscerating medicare, medicaid, social security, and military spending? >> well, very clearly as you know, the republicans actually have a pl
million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mak kinsy and company. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this, and the republicans had the plan. they put a plan out. they put a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done on a bipartisan basis. this was a bipartisan idea. in fact it was a republican idea. and governor romney at the beginning of this debate wrote and said what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice to republicans in congress about how to cooperate, but the fact of the matter is, we used the same advicers and
the next four years look like if president obama is re-elected. that's what the undecided voter in ohio looks for. what happens over the next four years? he laid it out, laid out the case, again, not just what's wrong, but what can be right, why we can't afford another four years of the past four years and why he's better going forward. he got the chance outside of the media filter to say what his plan's all about. it's easy for president obama and the democrats to run 30-second tv ads saying, you know, this is the romney plan, but it's inaccurate. he had the chance to say, no, that's not my plan, but the plan you want to run against. this is what i want to do, create jobs and economic growth. neil: there was cosmetic things i noticed, always looking at the president. the reason i remember that is because it's unusual, when you attack someone, i noticed in debates, you don't look at the guy you're talking to. in presidential debates, carter was not looking at ford, and ford not looking back at carter very much. is this -- guys you're in the same room. 30 minute power outage, and the two
